Help us improve our service

At Brepols, we’re continually trying to make our bibliographies better by improving functionality and adding new content.

We’d like to invite all users to kindly participate in the online survey below and give us their opinions about our bibliographies and how we can improve. All participants have the chance to win a Brepols book voucher of 100 euro. The winner will be selected by a random drawing at the end of 2018.

The survey will take no more than 5 minutes of your time.
